Gideon 2 Jdgs 71-25 The passage that I am working on is Gideon 2 Jdgs 71-25 When I first read this passage I thought that it was about Gideon and his troops conquering Midian As I see it the main concept of the passage is that but it tells of much more After reading the passage once I had many questions about it I first wondered Why did Gideon and his troops conquer Midian I also thought How and why is God going to help Gideon and his soldiers I was very curious of how 300 me were to overtake an entire city Why would God help them take over Midian I read the passage a few more times and read a different translation That helped me enormously in understanding the text The reason that Midian was to be conquered was to save Israel from the incursions of the Midianites Gideon was called by the angel of God to do so In reading different translations I found that Gideon did not actually fight God fought all of the battle himself With God fighting the 300 soldiers did not have to battle God must have helped the Israelites because they are the people of God Gideon also known as Jerubbaal means hewer or warrior He was the son of Joash and in the Abiezri clan part of the Manasseh tribe The story of the Midianites being attacked to free the Israelites from incursions is a lot like the story of the Israelites being set free from slavery Without God neither story would have turned out the way it did God made it possible to defeat the Midianites God made it possible to convince Pharaoh to free the Israelites The point I am trying to get across is that God has done many things that show he cares for his people has helped them out
